Eeloo is a dwarf planet that was released in version 0.18.2 as a Christmas gift to the KSP community. It is the seventh and farthest planet from Kerbol most of the time, though its orbit intersects Jool's, passing in front of it for a minority of its revolution period. The two planets are locked in a 3:2 resonance, which, coupled with their different inclinations, ensures they cannot collide.

Eeloo is has 3.5% more gravity than the Mun and is very similar in size. Like the Mun, it has no atmosphere. The physical characteristics of Eeloo are most likely an analogue of the ice moon Enceladus, and its orbit is similar to that of Pluto, though both bodies are known to have a tenuous atmosphere.

There are plans for Eeloo to become the moon of a second gas giant and have an active surface, with cryovolcanic phenomena.[1]


The surface of Eeloo is relatively smooth and covered in ice, with deep canyons exposing the surface below. The highest points are near the equator and are almost 3.9 km high.


A synchronous orbit is possible, at an altitude of ~683.9 km.


Using the Remote Tech plugin, path lengths from Kerbin can reach up to around 127 million km, resulting in a round trip delay longer then 14 minutes. Even at the closest approach, the communication delay is more than 6 minutes.
